The Lady's Dress for the Newsletter Freebie Pattern is completed!
All she really needs now are some fancy accessories and a dashing Gentleman by her side.
I ended up adding a few more rows to the dress length before I could attach the lace, and I finished it off with an extra lacy blue crochet skirt under the lace to help bring the colour throughout the dress. I also ended up re-doing the petticoat cage so that it could have more form.
There will be an option to make the dress without the lace, but I think the lace adds a nice element and texture to the dress. Don't you agree?
This nightgown pattern is for Barbie-sized fashion dolls and can be made in several different lengths.
It is done mostly in single crochet and is therefore really easy to crochet.
I designed this nightgown to go with the "Secret Pattern" coming out in Too Yarn Cute Magazine's September Issue - more on that coming soon...

This past week, I started working on slacks for the Gentleman part of Newsletter Freebie pattern (see the WIP of the Lady part of the pattern here), and I ran out of black halfway through the second pant leg (not fun when that happens). So, I started playing around with top ideas for Ken, and came up with these...
After a whole year of thinking about what I would like to offer my newsletter subscribers as their special freebie, I have finally settled on an idea which I am sure you will love.
Since Barbies are what I do, I knew that at least the main freebie pattern needed to be fashion doll related. So, I have figured something out for the Barbie and Ken dolls, and perhaps in future I may add an amigurumi pattern into the mix.
For the Lady, the plan is to make a really stylish dress complete with a petticoat, a parasol, undergarments, a bag, a hat and of course some shoes.
For the Gentleman, the plan is to make an equally stylish suit, complete with a top hat, jacket, trousers, top and shoes.
Mermaid inspiration is back... this time with the little Kelly dolls!

After all the craziness last week, I am happy to say that I am finally finished with the veils and their pattern!
This pattern is a guideline for making all sorts of stylish veils for fashion dolls like Barbie.
It includes instructions for re-creating the veils pictured, plus how to design your own in all 8 of the different veil lengths (cage, shoulder, elbow, wrist, fingertip, intermission, chapel and cathedral), how to assemble them, and several crochet edgings or trims that you can use on your veils.
Continue below for the pattern...
Working on the veils is taking a bit longer than I thought it would. Mostly because I needed to slow down this last week.
So I thought I would give you all a little preview of the crochet edges you will be able to add onto your veils.
There will be four different edging options. Each has a few variations, and is demonstrated in three different thread sizes using two different hooks.
Some of the variations include crocheting with beads.
Here's the first part of five in the Wedding Accessory series for Fashion Dolls.
This how-to-tutorial includes written instructions to make several types of headpieces such as crowns, tiaras and headbands, and how you can come up with some of your very own designs too.
There are 8 crochet versions and 4 wire-beaded versions in this tutorial. Each of the crochet version can also be crocheted with beads (if you need a video tutorial for this, let me know, and I will see what I can do). Each of the wire-beaded versions come with their very own video tutorials below.
These headpieces can be used on their own as a stylish accessory for your fashion doll outfits, or you can use them to fasten the veils (now available here) into place for your barbie weddings.
